Moore's winner came on a header off a corner kick by Collen Warner. It came just three minutes after Columbus (6-8-9) tied it at 2 when Justin Meram's cross confused Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik and ended up in the net.

In the 43rd minute, Gilberto opened the scoring for Toronto, depositing a perfectly placed feed by Moore past goalkeeper Steve Clark with his left foot. Then in second minute of first-half stoppage time, Columbus was awarded a penalty kick and Federico Higuain made no mistake, burying the shot in the lower right corner.

Toronto (9-7-5) broke the tie in the 59th minute. Tony Tchani's original shot was blocked by Clark, but Jonathan Osorio made good on the rebound to make it 2-1.
